European Parliament votes on Common Fisheries Policy


05/01/13

Members of the European Parliament's Fisheries Committee today voted on December 18, 2012, in favour of ending overfishing in and by the EU by 2015 and for the recovery of fish stocks by 2020.

As part of this landmark vote on the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the Committee also agreed to require EU member States to assess and eliminate fishing overcapacity and to provide financial aid only to member States or operators that observe EU fisheries rules.

 

According to Ocean 2012, of which Slow Food is part, the European Parliament's fisheries committee has voted to end 30 years of failed fisheries management by requiring EU fisheries ministers not to exceed scientific advice when setting fishing limits, and to restore fish stocks. German MEP, Ulrike Rodust, has drawn on the growing public support to end overfishing by leading the Committee to this result.

 

We now look to the plenary of the European Parliament and to EU fisheries ministers to ensure today's result becomes law." said Uta Bellion, OCEAN2012 co-ordinator.

 

Slow Food believes these are possitive measures, if they are carried out through Members of the European Parliament's Fisheries Committee today voted on December 18, 2012, in favour of ending overfishing in and by the EU by 2015 and for the recovery of fish stocks by 2020.
designed in concertation with local fishing communities, on a case by case basis.
